A car which runs very slowly in the morning travels at a speed of ft/s in the first seconds after it starts for .

  1. Draw the velocity versus time graph.

  2. Use your graph to write an equation for the distance the car travels in the first seconds after it starts.

    Distance is the area under a velocity curve.

    The area under the curve is a triangle. Therefore:
